the decisions that are made in a job, what you're producing, what technology's being used, what the health conditions of your workplace are, what's done with the fruits of your labor, literally whether your factor or your office continues, since you have to live with those decisions you ought to participate, the basic idea of democracy. so i like the idea of cooperative enterprises because it fulfills my value commitment to democracy. whereas a capitalist enterprise doesn't because it keeps all the decision making in a tiny minority. we all who go to work have to live with their decisions, but we don't articipate in them, not even to speak of the community that has to live with the decisions. but the second reason is i see concrete results coming from an enterprise that was run by the workers collectively, and let me give you a few examples. first, most of us believe that if the workers themselves made a decision that they would close the enterprise and move it to china, i don't think so. i think that the whole running away of enterprises out of the united states was made possible b

in containing iran, we're interested in preventing iran from developing nuclear technology. i think it should assuage israelis who are concerned about this issue i wonder why-- and this seems to be part of the conversation in washington-- that israelis need an american president to show some deep emotional attachment to affirm their rootedness to israel. this is a strong society, a country that has done remarkable things over the course of its 65-year history. i'm not sure why an american president -- only four of the last ten or 11 presidents have gone to israel, why this is so important. the other thing that aaron said that let me disagree slightly with is barack obama doesn't want to be the first president to let the two-state solution slip away. i'm not sure that the two-state solution makes sense other than in washington policy discussions about the peace process. if you just look at what has been happening in israel, in jerusalem with regard to settlement construction in jerusalem around jerusalem in the west bank the structure of this conflict in which the israelis can't poss
